I went through a period of feeling sorry for myself and not wanting to have any part of music. I had been in a trio and thought this was going to be it. I loved playing the music and was enjoying the success that was beginning. But it was not to be and I packed away my instruments and decided to never play again. I buried myself in being successful in other areas and tried hard to tell myself it was the best choice. That was over a year ago and recently I toyed with the idea of selling my instruments. I thought I will just play them for a couple of times and then sell them. I played my guitar one night and an idea for a song began. It really shocked me. It has been a couple of weeks and I haven’t changed my mind but the more I play the more the choice is easier to make. This week I was asked to bring my guitar to a party. I did and I can’t say it went well but I played and sang and it felt good.
Will the future hold musical success and fame or more personal enjoyment but one is for certain. I won’t be selling anything and I will be writing new songs. Maybe they will end up on You Tube and I will celebrate my old love again.
